Salem: Following the devastating tornadoes in Kentucky, a hundred cats were relocated to Massachusetts on Wednesday. These cats, formerly housed at the Kentucky Humane Society in Louiseville, were moved in order to make room for all the injured, lost, and homeless pets in the wake of the deadly tornadoes.
This is what Andrea Blair, a spokesperson for the Kentucky Humane Society, had to say in a statement "Our whole goal is to help empty shelters in crisis, so they can make more room for incoming animals who have been displaced by storms or given up by the owners because the owners can’t take care of them if they lost their homes, for example.”
The cats traveled on a charter flight from Kentucky to the New Bedford Regional Airport in Massachusetts and were then taken to the Northeast Animal Shelter in Salem to quarantine for the mandatory 48 hours before being offered for adoption. They are expected to be successfully placed in loving homes before the upcoming holidays through an adoption special to be undertaken by both the MSPCA and the Northeast Animal Shelter next week.
While most of the new arrivals will be housed at the Northeast Animal Shelter in Salem, 22 will be housed at the Cape Cod location.
For those who may be seeking to adopt a furry feline, there are options with regards to age as these cats range from kittens to ten-year-old. Some of these four-legged friends come with great names like Pebbles, Bam-Bam, Mayflower, and Pocahontas.
